Important points

A forex demo account provides a risk-free environment for you to try our web trading platforms. While much of the functionality of the live platform features in the demo, there are key differences to be aware of, including (but not limited to):

  • Trades made through the demo account will not be subject to slippage and interest adjustments, or out of hours price movements
  • Trades may be rejected if you have insufficient funds to open them, but, unlike on a live account, will never be rejected on the grounds of size or price
  • You will not be charged for chart packages on a demo account
  • Trades will not be closed if you have insufficient funds to cover margin and running losses, which can happen on a live account

Before opening a live account we recommend you read the information available on our website as well as the Customer Agreement to ensure that you are aware of the features of a live account.
